The story of the battle of Iwo Jima between the United States and Imperial Japan during World War II, as told from the perspective of the Japanese who fought it.
Flags of our Fathers (2006) was originally expected to be Warner Brothers' big Oscar contender that year but when it fell short of expectations - both critically and commercially - the decision was taken to rush Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) into release for award consideration. The film was originally scheduled to open in February.
General Tadamichi Kuribayashi:
The United States is the *last* country in the world that Japan should fight.
The artillery shell landing near Saigo when he empties the stinky bucket does not exhibit rifling marks on its driving band. Any shell fired through a rifled barrel would show these, therefore this projectile had never been fired from a gun.
